Thanks! I've been planning this project for months, so it's nice to finally be working on it.

The bridge is still there. It was originally built in 1913, and a few years ago (at a cost of several million dollars) was completely refurbished. As far as I can tell all of the renovations hewed to the original plans. The technical name for it is a Warren Pony Truss Towerless Lift Bridge. There are several nearly identical bridges along this stretch of the canal, apparently designed by state employees with no professional engineering experience. Their solution to the problem of raising the four corners of the bridge simultaneously is simple and ingenious. The lifting machinery is housed below the roadway at both ends of the bridge, but everything is powered by two 12-horsepower electric motors from the southern end. Counterweights and an equalizing rope system handle most of the heavy lifting, so to speak.

The model is based on publicly available drawings, photos and a few direct measurements. It's accurate to within a few inches, I think. The rest of the objects won't get this much care and attention. But this was the "hero" object and the whole point of doing the scene. Learned a lot in the process.

Your stuff is great! I will explore your suggestions.

Don't get me wrong here, I have supported software and operating systems for over 20 years. I finally bite the bullet and purchase my Terragen license to make simple animations. BOOM Microsoft pulls the plug on moviemaker, removes it from my PC, all without my knowledge or permission in my opinion. So now I can do this in Blender, no problem. It is a little more complicated, but I CAN do it. I just did not need this change at this time thank you very much. Rant over. :)

Are you not running Win 10?...there's a new movie editing app in the latest update. Haven't checked it yet but should be at least as good as Movie maker.

That's plain wonderful luvs. Direct modulator socket and modifications of the fractal shapes are the key.

Thank you N-drju! This set up will make a great neblua and is a fine example of where the noise goes! Filtered out of program you can see every little cell.....hehehe. If I were smarter, I could do it here, but I am not smarter.
